Papal Mass celebrating the Holy Sacrifice facing Calvary!
The music was pretty good too, I thought, especially the mass setting.I really liked the altar cross, and have not seen one like it before (it had a corpus on one side, and a Mother and Child on the other). Perhaps it was the headpiece of a medieval processional cross.One problem with open-air masses (apart from those in St Peter's square) is that the ambo tends to be located right next to the altar: in this case the Gospel procession only travelled about ten feet. It seems a bit odd to have a mass in a huge public space, yet concentrate all the liturgical action in a tiny area.
